Mission Statement

The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion seeks to empower Emporia State University students from ALL communities to improve their college experience by increasing access to academic, civic leadership, and cultural diversity training opportunities. The office assists in the programming of cultural events on campus which promote diversity awareness, cultural pride, and collaborative efforts between Recognized Student Organizations of seemingly distinct interests. The office seeks to provide a culture of a civic dialogue and a campus-wide "safe space" for students to develop their cultural identity without fear of harassment and with the support of others striving to do the same. We also seek to continue working with members of Emporia's diverse community groups to improve the cultural empathy all of Emporians and the quality of life for students attending Emporia State University.
